Q: What’s the difference between Prosecco & Champagne?
A: Champagne is from the Champagne region of France, 80 miles northeast of Paris; made with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir & Pinot Meunier grapes; and, produced using the “Traditional Method” – sugar & yeast are added to the bottle for fermentation.
Prosecco is made in the Veneto region of Italy, about 15 miles north of Venice; made with Prosecco (aka: glera grapes); and, produced using the “Tank Method” – sugar & yeast are added to large, sealed, stainless steel tanks for fermentation.Learn more about the flavor profiles of Champagne & Prosecco at Wine & Spirits 101.
